Swiss yacht flag?

Postby Jens » 03 Sep 2010 17:32

We had a visiting sail-boat from Switzerland in our harbour. First of all I didn't expect to ever see a sail-boat from Switzerland here. But the flag used was the normal Swiss flag but with a yellow anchor tilted in the top inner corner.
Sadly I didn't have my camera with me, but strange enough I haven't been able to find an image on the net.

According to the FOTW site the members of Swiss Maritime Clubs (the biggest one beeing the Socite Nautiqe de Genéve with more then 3 000 members) can obtain premission to use the the Swiss flag defaced by a Club emblem. But I have not found any Club which matches you description.

No, nor have I, and I'm still sad that I didn't have my camera with me.
But I've made one of how it looked like, only the anchor is not 100% correct, but gives a good idea of it.
